PUBG Mobile Season 18 Week 8 Challenges – Tips and Tricks

Flare Guns? Skip.

This is it: the final week of challenges. The PUBG Mobile Season 18 Week 8 mission list has been unlocked, and there’s no more than one particularly difficult task on the whole thing. That’s nothing a skip ticket can’t solve for those who just don’t have the time (or expendable rank points) to blow on dropping into certain doom just to find multiple flare guns. We’re looking at a relatively tame week to cap off a pretty different season this time around, so sit back, relax, and watch the RP flow in. Here’s your Season 18 Week 8 mission guide and our usual hints and tips to get you across the finish line.

Friend Squad Boost: Defeat 24 enemies in a room or on a rooftop in Classic mode

Being a Friend Squad Boost mission, you’re going to have a much better time pulling this one off with friends. Just grab a decent SMG while climbing up to a rooftop, keeping a shotgun close to your chest as you go. The latter is great for popping people in close quarters, whereas the larger outdoor space of a rooftop is better suited to a tight SMG. Weigh up the size of the rooftop beforehand, though.

If they’re particularly long, assault rifles may be the better option. You can also grab a couple of these kills by landing on a rooftop at the start of the match and hoping for a decent weapon. This will help clear any other rooftop missions left from previous weeks, too.

Choice Mission

  1. Kill enemies with Bolt Action Rifles in Sanhok in Classic mode.

    • Bolt-Action rifles tend to perform better at longer range, where their slower rate of fire won’t leave you immediately open to a counterattack or flank when you inevitably miss. Nest up in a high outpost between some major settlements like Sahmee, Bootcamp, and Ha Tinh.
  2. Kill 8 enemies with Bolt Action Rifles in Miramar in Classic mode.

    • Keeping up with the tips of the last, outposts between Los Leones and Pecado or San Martin are great picks. The mountains between the latter two can really help.
  3. Kill 8 enemies with Bolt Action Rifles in Erangel in Classic mode.
    • The fields surrounding Pochinki work well here. You’ll notice a couple of high buildings right on the outskirts of town that suit the job perfectly, as well. The eastern area of Georgopol gives you a decent view of each side of town, too.

Kill 16 enemies with FAMAS in Classic mode

Lucky for anyone trying to complete this, we recently detailed the best places to find the FAMAS in PUBG Mobile. It’s a weapon that’s exclusive to Livik that is classed as an assault rifle but performs much like an SMG, making it a powerful piece of equipment for virtually any situation on the smaller 2×2 map. So long as you can aim, you’ll likely get the kill.

Pick up Smoke Grenade in 20 matches in Classic mode

By now, you’ve likely completed this mission at least once before. It shows up in every Royale Pass sooner or later. Sometimes even twice. The fact of the matter is that Smoke Grenades are virtually everywhere. If you’re playing a match right now, you’re likely stepping on one like a tin can already. While they’re a great tool for getting you out of a pinch, into a prime flanking position, or even to an air drop, you don’t have to use one to complete this mission: you just need to pick one up in 20 matches. It’ll take some time, but you won’t have to go out of your way to do it.

Pick up Flare Gun in 5 matches in Classic mode

Unless you frequently hotdrop onto high-tier loot locations, your chances of finding five flare guns before the season wraps up is actually pretty slim. There aren’t many of these to go around. Just using one can drop a full loadout capable of carrying you to victory, making the things incredibly sought after. Unless you have countless chicken dinners under your belt, you’re probably better off using a skip ticket to clear this. It’ll only cause frustration.

Choice Mission

  1. Kill 6 enemies with S686 in Classic Mode.
    • The S686 is like a sawed-off shotgun with an ever-so-slightly faster rate of fire. Though it will beat most other pump-action shotguns early on, it’s quickly outclassed by better weapons. If you don’t land the kill with that first shot, you won’t get another.
  2. Kill 6 enemies with S12K in Classic mode.

    • The semi-auto S12K shotgun holds up at slightly longer ranges compared to other shotguns due to its high rate of fire and wide spread. Don’t don’t expect too much from it.
  3. Kill 6 enemies with S1897 in Classic mode.
    • The classic Winchester shotty sits somewhere between the previous two weapons. Missing a shot won’t spell certain doom, but you’ll need to be relatively close to your target to get the kill. Stay in or around buildings to give yourself some room to prep the next shot.

Choice Mission

  1. Kill 15 enemies with UZI in Classic mode.

    • Though it fires absurdly fast, the UZI suffers from relatively high recoil. Like other SMGs, it’s best suited to close/mid-range for this reason alone. You want all of its bullets to land in the target’s chest, and staying close can more or less guarantee this. Head to Livik to clear this with ease.
  2. Eliminate 180 enemies with the UZI in Arena.

    • So long as you stick to the ground of the Warehouse in TDM mode, you shouldn’t ever spot a target who’s out of range on your UZI. Learn to deal with its kickback and you’ll have no problem ripping your targets apart as you sprint around.

Finish in the Top 3 with friends 3 times in Classic mode

This is a great case for attempting this week’s Friend Squad Bonus mission with, you guessed it, a friend. If you’re struggling to find a buddy, the PUBG Mobile Discord is the best place to be. Beyond that, simply adding whoever performs well in your random squads can really work wonders. Don’t reinvite the guy or gal who took off at the start of the match. Form a group of serious players and you’ll automatically gain an advantage over the usual rabble.
